1260Re: [Distillers] Inverting sugar
- Nov 1, 2000Pete, Tony etc,
Recently used this process myself to start a batch
after breeding up my starter yeast and was amazed how quick it is and how it
accelerates the fermentation process. Fermentation trap was bubbling away
merrily ten minutes after closing and locking the lid. Cant comment
regarding quality as fermentation is ongoing and havnt distilled the
finished wash yet.
